Just a taste

F. C. Foodie's picture

Of course Foodie was at the annual Taste of Fayette event this past Sunday (you didn’t see a guy in a fedora and sunglasses?). Numerous area restaurants all putting their cuisine out there for the people to try? Fuhgeddaboutit. It’s a no-brainer. Foodie simply must attend an event like that. And what does Foodie think of Taste of Fayette, (since he’s apparently still writing in third person and some weird tense)?

Ehhh. Read More»

Letters from the editor: May 11, 2010

THE STATE OF JUSTICE IN FAYETTE: Two judges from the same judicial circuit resign within days of each other, both because of women who are not their wives.

That’s probably unprecedented in Georgia history ... not the “not wives” part, but the near simultaneous resignations. Read More»

I appreciate so much Justin Kollmeyer’s recent column on “I know what your pastor did last year. Do you?” I sometimes have to help people understand how I spend the time between Sundays. Read More»

In a TV commercial about buying gold, former Watergate figure and current radio talk show host Gordon Liddy transfers several coins from one hand to the other and says, “That’s the sound of security; that’s the sound of gold!”

After the events of last week, somehow gold doesn’t seem to offer the kind of security we need. Read More»

By Dr. Gary Scott Smith and Dr. J.D. Wyneken

Throughout history many congregations, Christian organizations, and individual believers have labored to do these things. Today, however, some political conservatives denounce the “social gospel” as misguided and unbiblical and counsel Christians to avoid or leave congregations that stress social justice. Read More»

April 29 finally saw the gavel come down for good on the 2010 session of the Georgia General Assembly. This year was an incredibly challenging year due to our state’s budget issues; however, a number of important pieces of legislation were passed by the General Assembly and now await signature by the governor.

Among many others, the General Assembly addressed important water, economic development, tax reform, transportation, public safety and criminal justice issues this session. Read More»

Where love was found

Ronda Rich's picture

When the newspaper reporter called to set up an interview for the story she was writing on my newest book, she said, “We need to shoot a photo, too. Do you have any suggestions for a good location?”

As a matter of fact, I did. Since the newspaper was located in the county where Mama had first laid eyes on Daddy and since that place was a church and since the new book was on faith, it seemed like the perfect place. Read More»

A hill of crosses

Sallie Satterthwaite's picture

In the photos it looks like a couple of lengths of PVC pipe, and not proportioned quite like the Latin cross Christians revere. It has stood for decades on a small pile of rocks on a craggy hill in the Mojave Desert, and is unadorned. At different times in its embattled 75 years it has been covered with a box or a blanket, with posters announcing that a religious symbol should not be placed on public land. Read More»
